Homeschool Curriculum – 10th Grade


01 Aug

High School Curriculum Books

Here it is – our 10th grade curriculum. I decided to take the easy way out this year, and hopefully eliminate some costs and headaches, by deciding to do most of my son’s schooling using Abeka Academy. We won’t actually be reporting to them, but we get the DVDs for each class, and have paid for all the necessary books to go with them.

In all honesty, I don’t mind using an eclectic method and choosing things from here and there, as that’s what I’ve done for my son’s schooling every year up until now, but he doesn’t seem motivated enough to get what he needs to get by just reading books and using various other resources. I felt something more structured was needed this year, and this seemed the most cost effective with minimal effort on my part.

 

The courses my son will be doing through Abeka Academy consist of the following:

Math and Science Classes for Homeschooled Students


23 Mar

 

My husband came across this site. How, I have no idea, but I thought I’d share it with others. It might be of interest to someone out there.

 

http://derekowens.com/

 

This site offers Math and Science classes for homeschooled students. There are on-site classes for those in the Atlanta area, and online classes for others.

Here are the online classes they offer:

Classes Offered
Math       Science
Pre Algebra Physical Science
Algebra 1
Geometry
Algebra 2 Physics
Pre Calculus
AP Calculus AB

 

There’s a $15 registration fee and then it’s $58 a month. The class can be spread out for as short or as long as you (or your student) want it to be. There are also textbook and workbook fees, which depend on the class you’re taking.

Here is where the online class information is: http://derekowens.com/onlineclasses.php

Like I said, I’ve never even heard of this, so, no, we haven’t tried it out, nor have I heard any reviews on it. It never hurts to know about more resources for classes out there, though.

23 May

Well, in case someone around here still actually follows anything I write (it’s been a looooooooooooooong time, I know) I thought I’d post this.

I found this in my travels today, and really know nothing of it, but it says there’s a FREE Summer Math Program for Grades 1 – High School to keep your children’s skills sharp this summer. If you have time and want to have your kids practice their skills, it might be worth looking into. Supposedly this offer is only good today, so if you’re interested, act fast!

It’s called “TenMarks Summer Math Program“.

Preparing for the Upcoming Year


12 Jun

Well, it’s that time again – time to buy new curriculum! Fourth grade here we come!

Actually, this year I am a bit late with it, working on getting my curriculum for each subject together much later than I did last year. By this time last year I had half my subjects scheduled for the year and this year I’ve just barely ordered everything – half of it has yet to come, and I’m hoping it will be here next week!

So, what did I decide? (more…)
